Known Issues

Release Notes > Known Issues

The following is a list of issues, including those attributed to third-party products, known to exist at the time of release.

General known issues

Known Issue Issue ID

Mouse cursor may become invisible in specific circumstances related to errors in Worksheet.

Workaround: Switch into a different Toad Edge View and back.

After upgrading from Toad Edge 1.0 , databases that were mapped (as part of Repository) will lose their mapping. 8223

When a database is synchronized with Repository, changes made to tables in the database that have been created using BLACKHOLE, CSV or FEDERATED engine are not detected in Object Explorer.

Workaround: Display the comparison window (right-click the database | Repository | Synchronize). The changes will be detected and subsequently displayed in Object Explorer.


After upgrading from Toad Edge 1.0, the latest MySQL JDBC driver is not automatically mapped.

Workaround: Map the latest driver manually in Preferences | Database. The driver can be found in C:\Program Files\Quest Software\Toad Edge\lib\drivers.

Toad Edge changes double quotes to single quotes in synchronization script generated for stored procedures, events and triggers which using dynamic SQL. 8750

Third-party known issues

Known Issue Issue ID

Setting up increased DPI (125%) causes some Toad Edge Tab labels to display incorrectly.

Workaround: Set DPI to 100%.


Loading identical Table Details on two connections may cause the dialogs that modify these tables to freeze.

Workaround: End Toad Edge using Task Manager.

After removing the Primary Key and making the column unique, MySQL still keeps PRI as the column key in columns table. 7249
MacOS connections to Amazon RDS databases may automatically expire and be dropped. 7621
Year 2000 in Year(2) data type (00) is not correctly represented in Object Detail or Result Set as JDBC driver raises an exception if the value of the year is 0. Such values are represented in grids as unknown. 8264

Names of functions with special characters are not stored properly in a database even when UTF-8 encoding is used. This can cause side effects such as not being able to grant a privilege to a function as its name in query is different from the actual stored name.

Workaround: Replace special characters by basic (ASCII).

MySQL time values are displayed as (invalid value) in Object Detail and Result Set if they are outside the range 00:00:00-24:00:00. This is a limitation of JDBC driver. 8236

On Windows 10 closing a tab in Toad Edge using a drop-down menu may close other tabs than intended.


Batch files that use UTF-8 BOM encoding cannot be executed by the Toad Edge command line interface.

Workaround: The CI/CD Wizard in Toad Edge generates files using pure UTF-8 encoding. Do not change the encoding once the files are generated.


Updating system Java may delete certain Toad Edge libraries. This results in the application being unable to connect to databases or obtain licenses.

Workaround: The only way to restore the deleted files is to reinstall Toad Edge
